Woke up thinking it'd have been abandoned, then see the sport pages. Jesus Christ!

The smile on Neesham's and Jordan's face for that last delivery is priceless

I gave up on this last night. It wasn't looking promising, weather wise. At that point they were saying 5 overs per side constitutes a match. Funny then, that ultimately it was decided by 1 over per side?

Any other link?

As I mentioned before, they come and go due to Sky copyright.

However a quick search by upload date and this 1hr upload has appeared; so I've cracked open another beer and just sitting down to watch it, despite having seen the earlier highlights.  :D

Excellent to see both Sibley and Crawley get hundreds in the 1st warm up game.

Don't think it's a world beating attack but you still have to get them.

Surely if Denly isn't fit Crawley will bat at 3.

Still don't get how Sibley wasn't playing this summer in an England shirt...

Looking at the batting order it seems England have played a first choice top 5

Burns
Sibley
Crawley
Root
Pope

We can then assume
Stokes
Buttler
Woakes
archer
Leach
Broad

If Denly is fit, he'll wind up at #3

Arguably the best young batters in the country in red ball cricket and will be very good to see some pressure for opening spots in our Test side instead of just picking a new one every series. Burns played well in the Ashes and think he compliments both Crawley and Sibley well along with giving us a left & right handed combo. Who was the last England opener to score a hundred on debut in a test?? I believe it was Cook and i certainly wouldnt bet against certainly Sibley becoming the latest if he can carry on his form

looking forward to the series, younger players getting the chance and with Denly at 3 a good balance of experience(if fit)

Root back to 4 and according to the Guardian Stokes is set at 5 and Pope is 6.


Sibley and Pope have got to be given time to settle in, we cant go back to Bairstow when there's younger players waiting in the wings with potential. I think myself Pope potentially could be the best of the bunch

Reports today have been that Denly is fit and will play the second warmup game with Bairstow to fly home. Only two tests so can't see Crawley getting a game, but clearly hasn't done his chances any harm!

Looking forward to seeing the first properly balanced England test team in years...
